My Dunedin Itinerary

Pitch Perfect

16 September 2013

Saturday saw delegates from around the South Island descend on Dunedin for The Warehouse Regional Annual Conference and awards dinner. Just one week prior, the pitch hosted the local Otago Rugby Ranfurly Shield Challenge, only for it to be transformed into a stunning dinner venue for the event.

The Otago Daily Times stand was set for a 750 seated dinner and the space proved ideal for the scale of the dinner and entertainment and the unique backdrop created the WOW factor Peter Allen from Seven Events was looking for "The client from the outset was keen to explore how we could hold a 750 PAX event at the Forsyth Barr Stadium. With the assistance of the Dunedin Venues team and Strawberry Sound the dinner was a great success. It is not every day that someone can say that had a seated dinner pitch side at the Forsyth Barr Stadium and dance on the pitch!".

Forsyth Barr Stadium, lit in red, really did help to create the ultimate ‘Big Red Shed’.
